In a shocking turn of events, desperate housewife Quinn Fuller-Forrester has delivered a much-needed soap drama to The Bold and Beautiful in the form of a steamy affair.
The first reaction to seeing Quinn after much anticipation of her new story was to deteriorate. It started when Quinn paid a visit to Forrester Creations and eventually overheard Zoe and Paris and decided to help Zoe in a teenage prank on her sister by adding digestive agents to her smoothie.
Remember, Quinn is a woman of a certain age, and that made her involvement questionable to say the least. Paris eventually succumbed to the trick her sister and Quinn played, and it ruined a romantic evening with Zende. All of this was puzzling because Quinn and Zoe had never shown signs of friendship, and the reason for their friendship made absolutely no sense. Seeing Quinn was a refreshing change, but I wish it hadn’t been so wasted. But there would be more to this story, and I’m actually glad I gave it more time to unfold.
While Quinn tries to deliver a heartfelt request on behalf of her moronic friend Zoe, she ends up fueling her own neglected flame. Quinn takes a trip to Zoe’s ex, Carter’s apartment. She sees the beautiful shirtless young man and loses her train of thought. Since her femininity is already raging, Quinn flirts harmlessly and rushes home.
In an attempt to regain her emotional and physical relationship with her husband Eric, Quinn arranges a night out and tosses him everything but the sink to seduce him. Under the pretext of being upset, Eric rejects her romantic advances and continues to put her off. As Quinn begins to question her position as his wife, problems brew.
While Eric is cold and passively aggressive with his wife without his knowing it, she has found an open ear in her new boyfriend Carter. He is supportive and friendly and offers to always be there for the lonely vixen. And did I mention that it was beautiful?
Although Quinn and Carter built a close relationship, no boundaries were crossed in the beginning. Quinn was rightly insecure, Eric always seems to put the Logan women above everyone else in his life. Despite the so-called love of his life, Stephanie, the Logans came first. So it’s understandable to see Quinn fall into this hole of uncertainty. She admitted she made a mistake in rigging Brooke and Ridge’s marriage, but Eric seems to be holding onto something for someone unaffected. It’s almost like he’s looking for a way out of the marriage.
And to further confuse the situation, Eric’s ex, Donna, sniffs around and drives a bigger wedge between the already tense couple. Donna hasn’t made it a secret that she wants a relationship with Eric, and when Quinn catches her in a compromising position, tension between the trio is high. Eric then abruptly heads off on a business trip when Quinn tries again to address his love for her. Because of his quick departure, she feels even more depressed than before. Since Eric is cold and condescending, Donna is a little too helpful with her advice, and Carter is so understanding, and if you throw in Carter’s ex wanting a reconciliation, that must be a recipe for disaster, right?
Still committed to their marriage at this point, Quinn feels more disappointed than anything that Eric isn’t even ready to forgive her. She feels defeated. When Zoe approaches her again to talk to Carter about their failed romance, Quinn hesitates at first, but Zoe insists that Quinn is her only hope. She asks Quinn to plead on her behalf again.
While Zoe Forrester Creations paces up and down in an outfit that isn’t terrible after all, Quinn goes to Carter again, where he opens the shirtless door. Again, an obviously nervous Quinn brings up Zoe and Carter closes her inquiries. Carter and Quinn begin to compare their own situations and end up having a deeply frank conversation about forgiveness. Surprisingly, Carter turns the conversation around Quinn and deals with her own subjects. I had my reservations about this couple, but the chemistry between these two lonely hearts is insane. Even when they just sat across from each other and Carter listed all of Quinn’s qualities, the burning heat flickered slightly.
“You have so many amazing qualities. You are a talented artist, you raised a wonderful son as a single mother. You are a great friend to punch for Zoe and besides, you are beautiful and vicious. It’s very sexy. ”
It was then that Bold and Beautiful fans were starting to pass out, and the heat soared on the last episode of the week. Carter asked if his compliments made Quinn uncomfortable, and she denied any discomfort. The conversation continued and Carter admitted that he still has feelings for Zoe, but he cannot overcome her betrayal and Quinn admits that she feels alone and is hungry for affection. She just wants to be held.
Quinn is also free to admit that she feels free to share her fears with Carter because he’s a great listener. He smiles adoringly at her as she expresses her desire to feel sexy and needed. As she finishes her thoughts, Carter puts a palm on her cheek tenderly and you can see the moment passing comfort escalate into something much more. Quinn is the first to unbutton Carter’s shirt and the hesitation is very evident as they get closer. When he starts unbuttoning her clothes and feather kisses over her exposed skin, she protests “We can’t” in a moment, but Carter is as unconvinced as I am sure that most of the fans are watching and continuing his illegal actions.
The Covid restrictions have apparently been lifted because when these two started there was nothing but fire. And by chance they had a Tryst in front of his fireplace, on his wall and also on his couch. And in a truly brave and beautiful way, they made sure that their wedding ring played a prominent role in this sinfully delicious affair.
Rena Sofer, who plays Quinn, and Lawrence Saint-Victor, who plays Carter, definitely hit all of the beats that led to this steamy affair. For now, it finally feels like real soap again. Hopefully building the blast later will be just as soapy and give starving fans the payoff we all deserve.
